Emotional Upheavals

Growing up in the 60s and experiencing the assassins of JFK, Robert Kennedy and MLK, obviously had an impact on my view of religion, politics and the world in general. This has become more obvious to me in light of the recent shooting in Tucson, which brought back sad, depressing memories. The lack of respect for the public offices is abominable. You can dislike the politics, and even the politician, but we must get back to a place where we can at least recognize and respect their dedication to service of the community and nation.

We seem to be experiencing a time of emotional upheavals on all levels. The spiritually minded are working more diligently to become more spiritual, which is what we truly are -- spiritual beings learning to live as humans, while most of the the religious right are fighting louder than ever to STOP spreading love creating a society where it's every one for him/herself, and the discontented and lost souls of this world are stepping into insanity and committing unfathomable acts of violence, hatred and cruelty.

Perhaps it has always been this way, we just weren't as aware because of the lack of media coverage. Today, the Internet keeps us updated of worldly events so quickly that our ancestors would be dizzy with excitement if they could but have a glimpse of this technology that we sometimes take for granted.

Along with the news of violence, we also have the opportunity to learn of so many things, such as medical research and scholarly reports on ancient texts, archaeology and the entire universe.

Universe - (definition) All matter and energy, including the earth, the galaxies, and the contents of intergalactic space, regarded as a whole.

So, we are all one. We should be singing the same verse in harmony with our counterparts.

As long as the spiritual seek to unite in their intentions and prayers for this wholeness of our planet, there is hope.

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

You can also learn more about the Zika virus from the Centers for Disease Control atCDC.gov/zika/.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is SCDHEC.gov/, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.




How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
